Meet Africa's tallest beauty model

Immaculate Aheu Deng (born Nov 28, 1986) is a beauty queen and fashion model from South Sudan. South Sudanese Immaculate Deng lost her dad at a very young age. She was then forced out of school to get married when she was just 15 years old to a man who was a total stranger to her for dowry. Deng escaped out of her marriage and seek solace in a refugee camp(Kakuma) in Kenya. She later went back to school and soon realised how much worth she was as a young woman. She made a decision and returned to her home country to take on life by the horns. She had developed a deep passion for modeling and she went for it. She surprisingly rose through stardom fast and ultimately became miss South Sudan 2009. Deng, who stands 6 feet 5 inches (1.95 m) tall remains the tallest documented Beauty Queen ever to take part in any Grandslam and any beauty pageant. Many international modelling agencies started to reach out to her team and this has totally improved her financial life and she has never been the same.
